Measures to be taken to make Sengkang junction safer

The authorities will put in place several measures in the next two months to make the junction of Sengkang East Way and Sengkang East Drive safer for motorists, cyclists and residents. 

Caretaker MP for Punggol East Division, Teo Ser Luck, said he has discussed the measures with the Traffic Police and the Land Transport Authority. 

Mr Teo, who's covering the ward vacated by former MP Michael Palmer, told reporters this morning that the measures aim to control the speed limits of vehicles. 

The measures include installing warning signs to inform motorists of the speed check area and enforcement of the speed checks. 

He said over the past few months, the number of accidents in the area has been declining due to Traffic Police enforcement.

Asked if he would be fielded as a candidate in Punggol East by the People's Action Party, Mr Teo replied that he's the representative for Punggol Central, a division under the Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC and should serve his constituents.

Mr Teo will conduct the formal meet-the-people sessions in Punggol East from the 8th of next month.
